Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 7/8/18 6:11pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette said he plans to play at 224 pounds this year, 11 pounds lighter than his rookie year. 'I feel lighter, quicker and I have a lot of my burst,' Fournette said.
Huddle Up: He managed more than 1,000 yards and scored nine times as a rookie, and as the early-down workhorse for the Jaguars, he should at least be able to duplicate those numbers in 2018, especially if he has a little more burst. He's a safe bet for another year of RB1 production.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 7/8/18 8:29pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is improving as a runner, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. 'You can see more explosion start to come from him,' Hackett said. 'Just his ability to pass protect and be able to catch the ball from the backfield.'
Huddle Up: Yeldon has taken a backseat to Leonard Fournette on early downs, and he could be facing pressure from Corey Grant in the passing game. If he can hold off Grant and remain the primary third-down back, he can be a RB5 as a handcuff for Fournette.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 7/4/18 4:33pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has earned the trust of offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and Hackett said Bortles' improved decision making will allow him to be 'a lot more aggressive' with his play calling.
Huddle Up: There were times when the Jaguars were winning in spite of Bortles, but he has topped 20 passing touchdowns and 300 rushing yards in each of the past three seasons. A few more shots down the field could boost his numbers a bit, but he should be a solid QB2 regardless.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 6/23/18 7:18pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars OG Andrew Norwell's signing is an indication that the offense will be built around RB Leonard Fournette and the running game, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Fournette is coming off a 1,000-yard season as a rookie. He isn't ready to enter the ranks of the elite fantasy backs, but he is a safe bet for RB1 production after the top options are off the board.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 6/22/18 9:41am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was constantly open during non-contact practices and made impressive catch after impressive catch, according to Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com.
Huddle Up: Per Fantasy Football Calculator, Seferian-Jenkins is the 17th tight end coming off the board with an ADP of 14.01. That's too low even if he does little more than match what he did last year as an underutilized and somewhat misused piece in the New York Jets' offense. The 25-year-old is one of the better bets to finish as a fantasy TE1 that isn't already going inside the top 12 at his position.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 6/17/18 7:04pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice is going to do 'big things' this season, according to Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette. 'He always had the talent when I was there at LSU,' Fournette said. 'He's going to have a great year.'
Huddle Up: Fournette powered his way to 1,040 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns as a rookie, and Guice could approach those numbers if he commands most of the carries on early downs, as expected. Guice is a RB2 candidate in redraft leagues and a first-round pick in rookie drafts.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 6/14/18 6:17pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been 'awesome' during OTAs, according to QB Blake Bortles, and John Oehser of Jaguars.com expects Seferian-Jenkins to be an 'integral part' of the offense in 2018.
Huddle Up: Jacksonville has been searching for a threat in the red zone, and Seferian-Jenkins could be the answer. He has low-end TE1 upside and should be available at a TE2 price.
D.J. Chark - WRPosted 6/5/18 11:33pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark is learning all three receiver spots and multiple roles on special teams, including as a return man on both punts and kickoffs.
Huddle Up: Chark's size and speed could help him carve out a role in a receiving group that's long on potential but short on experience. He's someone to watch in training camp and a possible late-round flier if he's in line for meaningful snaps.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 6/2/18 8:46pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has been 'relaxed' at OTAs because he no longer needs to think about the plays or his footwork, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Huddle Up: Bortles can have his issues with turnovers, but he's also a good bet for 20-plus touchdown passes and a sneaky source of rushing yards. He's a solid QB2.
Corey Grant - RBPosted 5/31/18 8:54am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Corey Grant is a player the team has to use, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Huddle Up: Grant had just a 30-248-2 rushing line with three catches for 41 yards during the regular season, but he was highly effective in the AFC Championship game with three catches for 59 yards early on. Those flashes make him worth the RB5 flyer.
Corey Grant - RBPosted 5/30/18 7:53pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said he would like to get RB Corey Grant on the field more often.
Huddle Up: Grant has a chance to serve as the No. 2 running back for the Jaguars this upcoming season and could be the team's third-down back because of his ability to be a receiver out of the backfield. Grant could be a No. 3 running back or a flex option for fantasy owners.
Keelan Cole - WRPosted 5/28/18 10:53am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole appears to be the leading candidate for slot receiver job at this point, in the opinion of FirstCoastNews.com's Mike Kaye.
Huddle Up: Cole is coming off a solid 2017 season where he posted 748 yards and three touchdowns. He should see a solid amount of targets this upcoming season and has a chance to be a No. 4 fantasy receiver in deeper leagues.
D.J. Chark - WRPosted 5/25/18 1:54pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars second-round draft choice WR DJ Chark signed a four-year deal with the Jaguars Friday, May 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Chark has joined a young receiver corps with Jaguars, so his role is uncertain at the moment. Owners will need to monitor the preseason to see how Chark is used in the offense. He should be a solid option in keeper leagues and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Tanner Lee - QBPosted 4/28/18 1:49pm ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars picked Nebraska QB Tanner Lee with the 203rd overall pick (Round 6) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Lee, who posted the third-most passing yards in University of Nebraska history, will challenge for the backup job behind Blake Bortles. He is a project and someone the Jags will try and groom for the future when Bortles is not around. This would have been the pro-style quarterback's senior year in Lincoln, but he moved on because he didn't really fit new incoming coach Scott Frost's up-tempo system. He is years away from seeing the field in Jacksonville.
DJ Chark - WRPosted 4/27/18 6:07pm ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Louisiana State WR DJ Chark with the 61st overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.
Huddle Up: Chark will join a young group of receivers for the Jaguars and likely will be a deep threat for the team. Owners in standard leagues could consider Chark in the late rounds of drafts because of his big-play ability.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 3/20/18 7:32am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns will be released Tuesday, March 20, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hurns is always nicked up, and his 64-1,031-10 season was three years ago now. He's worth monitoring, and there's potential, but he's a WR4 or WR5.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 3/20/18 3:38pm ET
Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Jaguars) has a visit scheduled with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 21, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hurns' situation will have gone from mediocre to worse if he signs on with the Jets. New York did themselves a favor by re-signing Josh McCown and bringing on Teddy Bridgewater, but neither quarterback is consistent enough to make any Jets receiver a week-to-week starting option. The good news is that Hurns would have the opportunity to make an immediate impact in a subpar receiving corps.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 3/20/18 4:55pm ET
Free-agent WR Allen Hurns (Jaguars) said he has received interest from the Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Hurns was limited to only 10 games in 2017 and finished with 484 yards and two touchdowns. He could be a No. 3 receiver for a team next season and has a chance to be a late-round option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 3/19/18 8:42am ET
Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief signed a one-year, $9.6 million deal with $2 million in potential incentives. The contract is fully guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Moncrief scored touchdowns in bunches, but he has yet to show he can be a reliable fantasy contributor. He's worth the WR4 flyer.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 3/13/18 12:10am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson (knee) intends to sign with the Chicago Bears shortly after the start of the new league year barring any last-minute snags Wednesday, March 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Assuming this deal happens and his recovery from ACL surgery goes smoothly, Robinson brings instant credibility to a receiving corps that needed help perhaps more than any team in the league. While a healthy Robinson alone won't be enough to guarantee Mitchell Trubisky succeeds, it gives him a fighting chance. This move doesn't figure to boost Robinson's fantasy stock much if at all, as he should remain in the WR2 conversation.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 3/13/18 12:00pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Marqise Lee has agreed to a new contract with the Jaguars, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Lee is coming off a decent 2017 season when he posted 702 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season. He likely will be a starter for the Jaguars and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 3/12/18 10:55am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson could receive some interest from the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Robinson could receive a lucrative contract this offseason, so Packers will have competition if they pursue Robinson. Robinson probably would be a starting receiver for the Packers if he signed with them and would be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 3/9/18 6:57pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns could be cut this offseason, according to James Koh of the NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Between upcoming free agents and Hurns' uncertain future, Jacksonville's receiving corps could look a lot different in 2018. After coming on strong late last year, Keelan Cole could find himself with a big role in the offense.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 3/6/18 7:44am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson will not receive the franchise tag or transition tag, according to sources. The team has until March 12 to work out a deal.
Huddle Up: Robinson was in the WR1 mix before tearing his ACL in Week 1. He'll enter 2018 as a high-end WR2.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 3/5/18 3:57pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson is expected to draw interest from the Washington Redskins if he is allowed to enter free agency, according to JP Finlay of NBS Sports Washington.
Huddle Up: An Allen Robinson signing could more than make up for the disaster that was the Terrelle Pryor addition last season. New quarterback Alex Smith and the Redskins could use another deep threat to complement Jamison Crowder's short-yardage tendencies. Wherever he plays, Robinson is solidly in the WR2 conversation but is a more ideal fit in standard leagues.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 2/26/18 6:59am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson will become the team's focus after they created $12.6 million in salary cap space over the weekend.
Huddle Up: Robinson is coming off of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and he'll be in the high-end WR2 discussion.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 2/26/18 4:00pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has thrown for 90 career passing touchdowns and just under 15,000 passing yards. Former NFL QBs Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Bledsoe and Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford are the only quarterbacks in NFL history to achieve those numbers before turning 26 years old. Bortles turns 26 in April.
Huddle Up: It's a strange world we live in when we can mention Bortles' name positively in the same sentence as Peyton Manning and Dan Marino. And while technically Bortles is not a part of that list since he has not reached 15,000 yards yet, he's practically there. Coming off an unsung season and after just signing a big contract extension, Bortles is an underrated potential QB1.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 2/25/18 9:06am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) said he is on schedule in his recovery from offseason wrist surgery and should be fully cleared by early March.
Huddle Up: Bortles played well at times this season and will have some value in fantasy leagues next season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks in most leagues but has the chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Corey Grant - RBPosted 2/24/18 12:30pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Corey Grant could receive a bigger role on offense next season with RB Chris Ivory no longer on the team, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.
Huddle Up: Grant played well during the playoffs and could have a role in the running and passing game. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 2/24/18 4:28pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is close to agreeing to a multi-year contract extension with the Jaguars that will run through the 2020 season, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Bortles played well during the second half of the season and also posted good numbers during the playoffs. He will have a solid receiving corps to work with next season and can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and possibly a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
